Rosario went 1-for-3 with a stolen base in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Astros. The young shortstop has been joined at the hip all spring with Robinson Cano, and Rosario seems to have picked up a few pointers at the plate from his Hall of Fame-caliber teammate. The 23-year-old now sports a .400/.478/.800 slash line with two homers and two steals in 20 at-bats, and given Rosario's outstanding athleticism, any skill growth could result in a breakout 2019.
Rosario (hand) went 1-for-1 with a three-run home run, a stolen base and two runs scored in Sunday's 9-1 win over the Cardinals in Grapefruit League play. Rosario didn't skip a beat after missing almost a week of game action due to a hand injury. He belted a three-run homer over the left-field fence during the second inning to stake the Mets an early 4-0 lead and was plunked by a pitch in his final plate appearance in the fourth. The 23-year-old shortstop continues his impressive spring, as he's now 7-for-14 with two home runs, six RBI, a stolen base and seven runs scored.
Rosario (hand) is in the lineup for Sunday's spring game against the Cardinals, Anthony Rieber of Newsday reports. Rosario was expected to return to action Sunday after missing nearly a week's worth of games because of his injury, and it turns out he will do just that. Rosario will play shortstop and hit ninth in Sunday's contest.
Rosario (hand) is expected to be in the lineup Sunday against St. Louis, Matt Ehalt of The Bergen Record reports. Rosario was struck in the hand by a pitch Monday against the Rays. X-rays were negative, but he was nevertheless held out of game action for five days. Assuming he suffers no setbacks in his return, he should have plenty of time to get up to speed by Opening Day.
Rosario (hand) remains out of the lineup for Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Red Sox, Tim Healey of Newsday reports. Luis Guillorme will garner the starting nod at shortstop while Rosario gets another day off to recover from a sore left hand. The Mets are likely just playing things safe with Rosario, who was cleared of any structural damage to the hand when he was struck by a pitch in Monday's exhibition against the Rays.
